Hi, and welcome to Wayfare & Bloom.
I’m Stephanie, I’m 28, and I live in Pittsburgh, PA. I’ve been journaling my whole life and started blogging in late high school as another creative outlet for my writing. As I became more interested in photography and travel, I decided to start a travel blog to document my experiences — good or bad — both for myself and others who enjoy planning trips and reading about travel as much as I do. I love visiting friends; hiking; kayaking; eating good food and trying new restaurants; breweries and other bars; and meeting new, interesting, beautiful people across the world. I’m trying my hardest to spend time in all 50 states, all 7 continents (here’s to you, retirement Antarctica trip), and all 58 national parks. Experiencing new people and new places is one of the most life-affirming and life-giving aspects of my life. Reflecting on those experiences helps me process, remember, and grow.
